Orbit™ 300 Multipurpose Digital Vortexer

S2030-300-B-230 Orbit™ 300 Digital Multipurpose Shaker

Compact Digital Vortexer

Three interchangeable platforms (available separately) accommodate a variety of sample containers to make the Orbit™ 300 a truly multipurpose shaker. The flat platform, covered with a nonslip rubber mat, holds plates, dishes, boxes, etc. The microplate platform will accommodate up to four microplates. The remaining platform has spring loaded retaining bars that adjust to hold flasks, bottles, racks and other containers in place.

  • Three versatile platform options
  • Shaking, mixing, agitating or vortexing
  • Heavy-duty construction
  • Safe for cold room or incubator use

Flexible Vortexing Speed

Time and speed are set and displayed digitally. Values are shown on the large, three digit LED. The broad speed range allows the Orbit™ 300 to be used for gentle mixing as well as vigorous agitation. The shaker housing is constructed of heavy gauge, coated steel to reduce motor noise and lend stability to the unit. This compact shaker can be used in temperature controlled environments making it ideal for cold room or incubator use.

VX-200 Vortex Mixer

S0200-230V-UK Labnet Vortex Mixer, 230V

Continuously variable speed makes the Vortex Mixer VX-200 useful for a variety of applications, from gentle mixing to resuspending pellets. The unit has a circular orbit, rather than the elliptical orbit found on many other vortexers. This allows a vortexing motion to be achieved even at low speeds, a task that cannot be accomplished with elliptical orbit units.

  • Powerful, reliable motor
  • Optimized counter balance
  • Circular orbit for effective vortexing at any speed
  • Standard CombiCup™ accepts a variety of tube sizes
  • Full range of accessories

Counter Balance System

Many vortex mixers prevent excessive vibration with added weight or suction feet which hold the unit in position. Labnet’s Vortex Mixer VX-200 utilizes an optimized counter balance system to minimize vibration during operation and prevent the unit from walking across the bench, even at high speeds. The Vortex Mixer VX-200 is lightweight and has no suction feet, allowing it to be easily moved from one place to another. The Vortex Mixer VX-200 can be operated in either touch or continuous mode. When in touch mode, the motion is activated by depressing the sample head and stopped by removing the pressure.

Continuous Vortex Mixer Operation

If the unit is set in the on position, the Vortex Mixer VX-200 will operate continuously until turned off. The small footprint and portability of the Vortex Mixer VX-200 allow it to be used almost anywhere. The unit is safe for use in temperature controlled environments. The CombiCup™ head supplied with the Vortex Mixer VX-200 can be used with a single tube or a whole handful. The unique over molding technology used in the manufacture of the CombiCup™ provides a sturdy plastic core surrounded with nonslip TPE. Optional heads accept microplates, microtubes, PCR strip tubes,15 and 50 ml tubes and blood tubes. All heads are friction fit – simply pull up to remove and press down to replace.
